Neymar & Luka Modric excluded from 30 man Ballon D’or shortlist as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Virgil van Dijk top nominations

                          PSG/Brazil star Neymar Jr. and last year’s Ballon D’or winner Luka Modric have been excluded from the 2019 Ballon D’or nominee list released Monday night with favorite Virgil Van Dijk competing against Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi for the France Football organized award.
 
The Ballon d’Or has been awarded by the French magazine, France Football, since 1956 and sees their editorial staff put together the initial 30-man shortlist.

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was included on the 30-strong shortlist, along with World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who have both won the Ballon d’Or a joint-record five times.
